God is my strength and courage.

Courage is the hallmark of a strong and valiant spirit. It distinguishes men and women in every field of human endeavor. It may glow like a steady flame day in and day out, recognized by everyone, or it may suddenly shine brightly like a brilliant star that had previously gone unnoticed.

Firefighters, police and other public servants show great courage every day. They may feel fearful at times, but they overcome their fear and act with bravery and assurance when others are in need.

I give thanks for these heroes, past and present, who courageously performed their duties at great personal risk. I know that God is with them, now and always, just as God is with me and within me.

Then an angel from heaven appeared to him and gave him strength.--Luke 22:43 (

We Won!

We won a best booth award at Road to California! We were soooo excited! It makes all the hard work worth it. A special thank you to the judges from Road to California.  Lots of credit goes to Beth & Cindy who make setting up the booth look so easy, but we all know its alot of work.

Thank you to everyone who came to see us at Road. We always have a great time seeing everyone. The Monday after Road, Debbie from Wooden Spool Designs taught a class at the store. Once again, we had such a good time. There were 3 fun projects made from wool. I will show you 2 that I was able to finish in class. We hope to make this an annual event at the store. The pumpkin and acorn are new patterns that Debbie will debut this Spring. How lucky we were to be able to make them ahead of the pattern release. Thanks Debbie!

We have lots going on in the store. Lots of kits, lots of new classes, and more to come...Here is a little preview, but you will want to come in to the store to see what else we have going on.

Suzanne is teaching the Pinwheel Star. She has taken the pattern and made a cute tablerunner from a pack of our pre-cut charm squares. The tablerunner is done in Easter fabrics, but would look good in any fabrics. What an awesome gift for someone. This is a really great class & you learn how to do inset seams. The pattern for the class is for a full-size quilt, so once you learn the technique, you can keep on making blocks. 

We hope to see you soon!
